right here we go, bit of progress on this now house extension is all done and my stupid car has a working engine.
I took the dash to work and trimmed it in some nice carpet that will stand out from what were gonna trim rest of carpet in. dash is dark blue/ can hardly tell its blue, rest of the trim is gonna be a dark grey.
tubing for cables has now been run ready to start stringing cables through, all sealed up and out of the way hidden in the body. random holes that were in the body have been blanked off using ally, rivets and sikaflex such as the big one at the front where a massive heater was that was no use. speaker box at the back is taking shape and will soon be ready to be trimmed and put together.
were gonna be working on this quite a bit now we have garage back

now got a pair of sabelt harnesses in, so we now have a blue 3 point sparco harness for sale.
all it needs for MOT now is new master cylinder for brakes as piston is shot and the mirrors bolting on.
